Intervention; it’s my new favorite TV show on A&E. For those of you unfamiliar with the show, go to the website and watch an episode, but for the sake of today’s intervention and the spirit of saving time, here’s how they describe the show:
“The Intervention Television series profiles people whose dependence on drugs and alcohol or other compulsive behavior has brought them to a point of personal crisis and estranged them from their friends and loved ones. Each Intervention episode ends with a surprise intervention that is staged by the family and friends of the alcohol of drug addict, and which is conducted by one of four Intervention specialists.”
Each episode begins with the addict introducing him or herself in front of the camera, spelling his or her name, and telling the audience what his or her addiction is. So let’s roll the tape of today’s special episode…
“My name is Tim…T-I-M. And I’m addicted to crack-cocaine.”
This is Tim’s story.
